CHELSEA v Crystal Palace: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 29 August Kick-off: 15:00 BST Today is Jose Mourinho’s 100th Premier League home game in charge of Chelsea. He’s won 76 and lost just one of the previous 99, bizarre that he’s questioned quite so stringently the minute we drop points – he’s lost the grand total of one game [...]

West Brom v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: The Hawthorns Date: Sunday, 23 August Kick-off: 13:30 BST Today’s game will be Mourinho’s 300th in charge of Chelsea, so in spite of our poor start to the season you’d have to think he’ll fare better than Villas Boas and Di Matteo did after defeats in this fixture. Not that Mourinho will be advocating [...]

Man City v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Etihad Stadium Date: Sunday, 16 August 2015 Kick-off: 16:00 BST If everyone can stop sympathising with our medical staff for 90 minutes and take a break from castigating big, bad Jose Mourinho, there’s a small matter of a trip to the Etihad to focus on this afternoon. Not unusually for our boss, there’s no [...]

Jose Mourinho: Business As Usual

No sooner has the new season got under way than Chelsea find themselves in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Not the red card for Courtois though, or even the draw at home to Swansea on the opening day – as ever, it’s Jose Mourinho.

Eva Carneiro: Who’s Really Got The Agenda?

Eva Carneiro, is still Chelsea’s first-team doctor, she hasn’t been sacked and she isn’t some poor victim of sexism from Jose Mourinho. She was simply told off for actions the Chelsea boss disagreed with – and she chose to take to Facebook as a result.

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Community Shield Preview

Venue: Wembley Stadium Date: 2 August, 2015 Kick- off: 15:00 BST At long last, after a summer break seemingly full of women’s football and slightly less sunshine, today sees the clichéd ‘curtain raiser’ to the 2015-16 season with the Charity Shield. Today’s game will be the 14th meeting between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger none [...]

CHELSEA v Sunderland: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 24 May Kick-off: 15:00 BST Here we go then, last game of Chelsea’s 4th Premier League winning season and the perfect day to be at home. We were lacklustre and understandably lacking motivation for our last game but it would be good to see out our title winning season on [...]

West Brom v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: The Hawthorns Date: Monday, 18 May Kick-off: 20:00 BST Whilst the footballing world continues to mourn the loss of Steven Gerrard – well, Liverpool and their press buddies anyway – I expect we’ll slip tonight’s game in pretty much unnoticed. We’re only the Premier League Champions after all. For those who do still have [...]

CHELSEA v Liverpool: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 10 May Kick-off: 16:00 BST This afternoon’s game sees us host a Liverpool side scrapping to get into the top four – well, at least they will do once they’ve given us a guard of honour. Oh, of course I should just mention in case anyone wasn’t aware – we’ve [...]

Jose Mourinho: Doing It His Way

When Jose Mourinho returned to Chelsea, there were reservations. Despite his unquestionable success as a Chelsea manager, his first spell at the club hadn’t ended well. He’d won everything but the Champions League with us, yet lost his head too often in the process. He’d also lost a fair bit of respect – not least [...]
